Volkl PB 10

Semi-Pro
Ok so ive been using this racket since last November, rotate this racket with PC600, ive current used all poly in it at 55lbs, and my last setup off big banger original has been at 44lbs - just to try a low tension.

I preferred poly at 55lbs - as its generally my setup every time, that i can generate my own power, so i dont need lower tensions at all as im a deep flat hitter.

Im about to use a gut poly hybrid with babolat vs touch 16/lux 4g-17gauge, just wondering has anyone used a gut/poly hybrid with this racket and if so what tension.

Ive also noticed that i struggle with the backhand side with this racket, on the backhand side i cant generate my own power at all and with no spin - any one else has this issue.

My PB10 is the all black version with yellow paint, its a stock version with no lead tape, noleather grip- just the original syn grip came with it, ive only added a Yonex supergrap overgrip on it.

Like to hear your lots setups with this racket

I've used a buddy's pb10mid quite a bit, I feel like out is the best racquet I have used for my backhand. Be sure you are stepping into your shots and hitting through the ball.

It feels pretty low-powered and boardy to me with a full bed of cyclone at 50 lbs. I have a 2HBH though, and it seems to gel with that very nicely. Next thing I am trying with it is Cyclone or Vstar in the mains and duraflex in the crosses.

ive used cyclone with it 55lbs, cyclone my best poly to use.

Im gonna have to change my strings played with it on thursday at my clubs mens doubles night and the strings are completely dead. Going to try babolat vs touch gut in the main with luxilon 4g in crosses, but i dont know what tension to use the gut, i dont it below 50lbs, anyone tried gut in it?

I put 1 gram at 10 & 2 to move the SW up just a little bit. At first I felt like the SW was too low for me and I swung it too fast that I would often mishit.
